Stupid Conservative Myth #16

Here's the next one on the delusional list conservatives repeat to themselves before bedtime so that they can avoid reality before Rush gets out of his next rehab (or, if there is any justice is this country, prison term):

Liberals believe Hillary Clinton is honest, trustworthy, and didn't have a clue that Bubba was cheating on her.

Here's a tip for you conservatives out there: All politicians lie, and we liberals are all too well aware of it.

Sometimes they lie about stupid little stuff, like marital affairs that really aren't anyone else's business anyway. Sometimes they lie about moderately important stuff (visiting a "Head Start" program to tout it, then cutting the funding, that sort of thing), but you can swallow it because you believe in the bigger picture. Sometimes, though, the lies are huge. Those are the lies that are used as pretext for war ("Gulf of Tonkin" incident, Iraq WMD claims along with shifting justifications for war) or lies about matters of national security (like the fiction that Bush is doing all he can to find the Valerie Plame leaker).

Face it, conservatives: you've got a liar for a president, and he lies about the big, important stuff. All the time. The proof is plain as day (and I've been laying it out there for nearly a year now, not to mention the many other bloggers doing it more often and more thoroughly), and it will continue to be so even though you may hold your hands over your ears and scream "Clinton!" over and over. The sooner you wake up and smell this simple truth, the sooner you will be capable of making a positive contribution to the political discourse of the greatest nation on the Earth.

When Clinton lied, no one died.

But I thought conservatives were against divorce; that is, if the man's cheating, the woman should suck it up and try to make the best of the situation?

Clinton was the most useless president we've had since Carter.

What do they have in common? They were the last two Democrats who held the office.

Clinton: Turned down the offer to apprehend Bin Laden. Check.

Oh great, a new wingnut troll. Ok, let's play. Define "useless". Do you mean useless in terms of, say, job creation? Economic growth? The federal budget situation? Strategy against terrorists (foiling the millenium plot vs Bush sitting on his ass while bin Laden's guys were in flight school)?

Clinton tried to get bin Laden, remember? And Republicans fought him every step of the way, chanting "wag the dog". I'll compare the Clinton record to any recent Republican any day of the week and make a fool out of you.

Bring it on.
